Anuga FoodTec to focus on packing and food safety
The demands in food are high. Only companies that master and check the packing process get safe products. From 20 to 23 March 2018, Anuga FoodTec in Cologne is placing a special focus on modern methods for checking leaks and X-ray inspection.
Inline and offline leak testing systems for individual packaging and entire transport packaging can be found at Anuga FoodTec. The spectrum ranges from random tests in the water bath, to visual inline inspections, through to gas-based technologies that detect leaky packing. For the manufacturers it is just as important as immaculate packing that the food reaches the consumer free from metal, foreign bodies and other contaminations in line with the HACCP and IFS norms. Metal detectors or X-ray scanners like the ones that will be on display in Cologne ensure safety at the end of each packing line. Metal detectors provide valuable assistance in detecting magnetic and non-magnetic metals.
The production in the food industry has never been so closely and seamlessly monitored as today. Innovative quality control technologies are under the spotlight at Anuga FoodTec. And not only at the stands of the over 1,700 exhibiting companies. The significance of the theme food safety is also reflected in the offerings of the event programme. On the fiirst and third days of the fair, foreign body detection and the leakage test of MAP packing are on the agenda of the forum "Themes, trends, technologies - this is what is moving the food industry". Always a decisive point for the speakers: The different testing principles and their advantages and disadvantages for the user.
